Abstract
The article is devoted to two decisive battles in 1943 that have completed a radical change. On the analysis of the German High Command preparation to “Operation Citadel” much attention in the article is paid also to the technical characteristics of the German and Soviet armor. The article emphasizes that knowing about the impending attack of the German troops, the Soviet command intentionally moved to strategic defense. Knocking the offensive potential of the German troops, the Soviet command implemented operations “Kutuzov” and “Rumyantsev”, which ended the liberation of the territory of the USSR, and in crossing the Dnieper were created preconditions for the liberation of the whole territory of Ukraine.
